The Great American Foundation
Initiative: Partnership with the Alliance for Children
There is no shortage of need for children who are orphaned in Haiti and around the globe, but there is a shortage of resources. We have a vision to provide greater opportunities for the most vulnerable children by creating Learning Centers in all the countries where the Foundation works.
Our education program begins with the installation of a computer lab connected to the Internet. This summer, we will start teaching essential computing skills to the children and expose them to developmentally appropriate educational software in French and Creole.
As the children become adolescents, our main focus will be to provide direct skills and vocational training to prepare them to be self-supporting adults who can thrive. We plan to integrate community and business partnerships and lay the foundation for future career and higher educational opportunities.
We are starting in Haiti and hope soon to expand to China, Colombia, and Vietnam. We need funding to realize our vision!
